Care services should not be an afterthought

20 April: R&RA’s director, Helen Wildbore, shares our concerns about the impending crisis in social care on the Mail Plus podcast, Coronacast. The interview covers the rising number of deaths in care homes, the lack of testing and personal protective equipment and shares the concerns of relatives we hear via R&RA’s Helpline.

“For too long it has felt like care services are an afterthought in this crisis”

Helen called for urgent implementation of the Government’s action plan for social care. Listen to the podcast here.
